Hawaiʻi has experienced multiple disasters over the preceding few years. Whether it was a global pandemic or the Maui wildfires, our community has dealt with the increased stress and strain these disasters caused. Unfortunately, we know that these stressors do not impact everyone equally. Research has documented that there is an increase in both the prevalence and severity of domestic violence, specifically targeted at women, after these events. Please join us for a discussion on how disasters, both natural and manmade, impact our ʻohana dealing with domestic violence so that we can better help our community heal.
